So this great big ad is the first thing you see when you open this magazine. This mag is published by Newsdesk Media on behalf of the G20 Research Group, so I don't think it's the official publication given out at G20 summits etc, but it is pretty prestigious. I heard from afoaf that the printing had to be delayed as Mr Putin himself didn't approve his photograph - it had to be changed at the last minute!

Here's a digital version of the mag, it has links to the full magazine or just the contents:

http://g20.newsdeskmedia.com/Index.aspx

Here's a PDF of just the contents with the ad on the 2nd and 3rd pages:

http://g20.newsdeskmedia.com/Images/Upload/g20/PDFs/Cover-and-contents.pdf

I thought it was cool to see something so bold about Bitcoin in such an academic and finance-based publication, it shows that more professionals could be finding out about Bitcoin through targeted and respected media.

Funny thing is, I still can't quite work out what the Bitcoins.com site is for... It says it's owned by "Tibanne Co. Ltd.", who also own Gox if I'm not mistaken. According to the site, not all services are ready yet - it also says "Bitcoin Exchange" next to the Google search result... Maybe this will be the new front-end site to their upgraded Midas trading engine, and they've used another subsidiary company name? Maybe someone here knows something about this?

Anyway, thought it was worth posting  Smiley

Guess I'll make that my sig, all the cool kids have one...

Mt.Gox already did that at the last G8
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/currency/10139651/Why-Bitcoin-is-on-the-money.html

Not sure it was a good idea though...

Quote
Largely unnoticed, an interesting advert appeared in a handbook accompanying the G8, placed by a company that was until recently known only to a small number of technology entrepreneurs and early adopters. The advertiser was Mt Gox, a marketplace for trading BitCoin, a digital currency.

Quote
But almost unnoticed, the rise of digital currencies like BitCoin threatens to render obsolete even the modest progress made by the G8.

I think bitcoin should continue to grow and straighten in the shadow at least for a while before these suckers try to catch on it.

Same here with Firefox

The printed magazine hasn't been distributed yet, when it has maybe they'll sort the site out and make it clearer what it actually does...?

Guess I'll make that my sig, all the cool kids have one...
